Rag Radio 01-19-2010 / Singer-Songwriter Vince Bell
-Conversation with legendary Texas singer-songwriter Vince Bell, with live performance. Vince has performed widely for decades, and his songs have been recorded and performed by Little Feat, Lyle Lovett, and Nanci Griffith. Vince's book, "One Man's Music" -- which he also performs as a one man musical play -- chronicles his remarkable comeback after an automobile accident in 1982 that nearly killed him and left him in a coma for a month. He had to learn again how to talk, to walk, to play the guitar, and to sing. We discuss his anecdote-filled early career, the accident, how he survived, persevered, and returned to the stage.
